The Story Behind “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”

I’m sharing this blog post from American Songwriter. Some interesting facts about the song, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” I’ve always had a difficult time singing this song as I can never get through it without choking up just a bit. It’s just so sad and a little bit heartbreaking. Well, now I know why!

Judy Garland’s original version in “Meet Me in St. Louis,” is a gold standard. But I really enjoy James Taylor’s version as well. A bit modern but none of the sadness is lost.
